4423 loose BNC jack

Post by geoffwelsh » Sun Sep 24, 2017 8:08 pm

Brand new to forums, please excuse any missteps in protocol and/or guide me.

I have a 4423 that was graciously donated to me about six months ago. It works great, but the channel-A BNC jack is physically loose. Can I open up the case, and just tighten a nut behind the jack (like on "olden days" equipment) or is this a catastrophic failure waiting to occur?

Thank you from Hawaii, USA.

Hi Geoff,

Welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of #SquigglyLines. :D

The BNC's are a bonded unit so sadly no nut to tighten, usually if a BNC has been over stressed on active service there are other issues as well. Your best course of action is to contact the guys and gals in the US office :arrow: https://www.picoauto.com/about/usa-address and have a chat with them. They will arrange a repair for you. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised at the service level.

Kev.
